Lifetime Achievement Award winner Mary Ousley and a host of other top executives will fill the speakers roster at the first McKnight’s Women of Distinction Forum on Wednesday.

The Forum follows the grand Women of Distinction online awards ceremony the night before. It starts at 6:45 ET Tuesday and features special guests including officials with the New England Patriots, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and many others. The ceremony also will feature video montages for each of the 2021 Women of Distinction honorees and a keynote address from Ousley.

The forum on Thursday features three educational webinars, with each carrying the ability to earn CE credit. The sessions are named “Addressing pandemic challenges with success,” “Finding success in increasing diversity and inclusion” and “Secrets to career success.”

Both days’ events are open to a broad audience, including women and men from all parts of long-term and senior care. There is no cost to attend any part of the overall event. Registration is ongoing.
